Description:
This paper summarizes the evidence base for systemic practice with adult-focused problems, and updates a similar paper published in JFT eight years ago (Carr, 2000). It is also a companion paper to a review of research on the effectiveness of systemic interventions for child-focused problems (Carr, 2008). The overall effectiveness of systemic therapy is now well established. In a review of 20 meta-analyses of couples and family therapy trials for a range mental health problems across the lifecycle, Shadish and Baldwin (2003) concluded that the average treated case fared better after therapy and at 6-12 months follow-up than in excess of 71% of families in control groups who, for the most part, received standard services.
